With every $120.00 Service Call, The Pool Boys® perform our On Point Checkup Pool Equipment Inspection. This inspection was designed to provide our customers with a thorough diagnosis of their pool filtration system.
Often times there are issues with the pool equipment that you aren’t even aware of that should be taken care of before they result in bigger more costly problems.
We understand that every time you have to hire a service professional, schedule an appointment, and arrange for them to access your property, it can be an inconvenience. Our On Point Checkup Pool Equipment Inspection helps identify most problems on the first trip.
This inspection process was developed over an 8 year period, and continues to be refined as new and better procedures are introduced. Here’s a list of what we check on each $120 Service Call from The Pool Boys.
